Red Herring Mysteries Level 1
Each of the "mysteries" is part of a longer untold story which is "behind the scenes." It is up to the students to deduce the rest of the story from clues derived from answers to their Yes/No questions. For example, the story behind the sentence, "If Leo had kept his hand down he might be a free man today," can eventually be revealed if enough questions are asked and the answers are used to form a mental image of the event. It may take many Yes/No questions over several days to finally reveal that Leo is a not too-bright bank robber who incriminates himself at his trial by raising his hand when the prosecutor asks a witness, "Is the person who robbed the bank present in the courtroom today?"
Red Herring Level 1 includes: solution tips, suggestions, answers, a sample questioning session, and thinking map (organizer) to keep track of student thinking.
